Our school / PTA; charity, group & association fundraising customers find that on average families and members buy between 1-3 calendars each. For complete risk free ordering use a proof copy to obtain firm orders up front.
Corporate and private customers usually have a good idea on quantities they need to promote their company or to use as gifts for family and friends.
Remember, the unit cost of your calendars reduces substantially with increasing quantity. We make various cost savings when printing higher numbers, and we pass those savings on to you.
Studio time is costly and so where ever possible provide artwork that is well stuck down and free from any unwanted marks. If you are unhappy with your artwork then do get in touch and we will give you an estimate for any post processing required.
You may include month names as part of your artwork layout design. Otherwise we will automatically include them, usually outside of the artwork area. Grand Deluxe and London Elegance already have month names included as part of their design and so visually, are probably best to not to have month names duplicated.
If you’re ordering more than ten but less than fifty calendars or you’re unsure if your quantity will reach our minimum, then you may request a printed proof. The cost is £25 + vat (£30) which is fully deducted from your final invoice total should you proceed to order 50 or more.
Customer will smaller orders consider this to be a good investment in obtaining firm orders. You may be asking – why the proof seems expensive? This is just a token payment toward part of the cost of studio setup, print, production and postage. After all you wouldn’t expect us to go through all that time, cost & effort for nothing, would you?
After a proof has been accepted we aim to produce and send off your calendars as fast as we possibly can. (Typically 7 days and a wee bit more in the height of the season).
Digital Artwork & Photo Images:
The majority of our artwork and photos are sent as digital files. Either as attachments to emails or in the case of larger files via a service such as WeTRANSFER or Dropbox. (Check out the required specifications in our HINTS & TIPS booklet.)
Full details on preparing and sending artwork is detailed in “Hints & Tips”.
